    This collection contained some stories I'd never viewed before and as a FAN, it's another reason not to view today's 'modern' re-makes of the classics.

            I was not disappointed!!! Philo Vance always on his game solving murder mysteries. I like the different actors who play Philo in each movie. Gives each one a different flavor of acting and personality!

                Comments about this product:

                The Philo Vance series has the Philo Vance roll filled by several different actors, which is a minor complaint. The movies themselves are entertaining and are very good when included with Bogart, William Powell and Movies from the FALCON series as a "Mystery Night" All in all, the series is worth the investment and fun to watch.

                  Comments about this product:

                  Philo Vance is one of the great detectives of the film noir era who takes dapper to a whole other level. Played by such notables as William Powell, this sleuth solves the most interesting cases with flair and style. Anyone who likes the detective genre like Charlie Chan or Sherlock Holmes will want this series to add to their collection.
